Greetings,

Today, I went to access my Bookmarks, & found them "Empty", other wise "Missing"!

I found the "How to recover missing Bookmarks" topics, & that did bring back,what I consider to be My "Permanent Books", bu the section called "Other Bookmarks" will not come back, no matter how many times I go through the "Restore Bookmarks".

I Absolutely need that section to be restored, for I had many files in that section that I updated daily, that I planned to move to the "Bookmarks Section".

How can I get get this section restored?

I have no idea how it started or why, but in the past couple days anytime I leave my cursor over a paragraph or chunk of text on a website, a black box appears where my cursor is with the text in it in white. If there is a lot of text, there's a sidebar to scroll down in the box. This disappears as soon as I move my cursor, but reappears as soon as I set it near some more text. I assume this is some kind of accessibility or reading feature, but I have no idea how I turned it or how to get rid of it. I've looked online and in my setting and had no luck getting rid of it. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi, i got a problem with Firefox 86.0 after last update. Firefox freezes when I switch video, skip ads or go to main page when any video plays on Youtube. But there's interesting thing: if i pause video first and then switch to another, all right. But if i don't pause, firefox freezes with 100% CPU load. I have never seen that problem before.

I tried these steps, but it wasn't helpful:

1. Disable recommended perfomance settings and hardware acceleration. 2. Clear cookie, cache and startup cache. 3. Safe mode with disabled plugins. 4. Refresh Firefox. 5. Full uninstall Firefox and install again.

I don't know what else i can try to solve this problem... Please, help!

I've been having the problem of websites loading slowly on Firefox for a few days now. Firefox itself loads quickly, but opening Youtube for example takes a very long time.

I have this problem since I have a new internet line, yet this is most likely not the problem, since on chrome this problem does not occur.

As a solution I have cleaned firefox and even clean reinstalled it. However, the problem still occurs. I suspect that this is a problem related to my profile. Even opening it without addons does nothing.

Any ideas?

hello there and good evening:3 my husband and i are having this repetitive and extremely frequent bright yellow pop up with a robot that states "a webpage might be slowing down your browser." then the option to wait, or stop it. i've ran out of patience with this notification to the point to where even though i'de hate to, i would have no choice but to switch back to chrome just to stop being spammed by this pop up while im trying to relax. it happens more frequently on youtube and walmart.com, and i just want it to stop because it seems as if when it does show up, once it starts it never stops, and it actually slows down my webpage to the point of becoming unresponsive and stalling/crashing my only webpage open at the time. my husband has the same issue and we both use windows desktop. it only started appearing after the latest update. please, can someone help me make this thing go away? its very stressful and i cant browse in peace anymore on firefox. yes we have turned off all background processes, and we both have scowered settings troubleshooting for hours at a time to no avail, it just never stops and it behaving like a really bad bug.

I'm running Arch btw, with GNOME Shell 3.38.3 and Firefox 86.0 (64-bit).

If I have Firefox already open and I click on a link inside of another app, Firefox displays the following error message and the link fails to open.

Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.

However, if I close Firefox and then click the link again, Firefox will correctly open the link.

Hello. I hope someone can help me. For the last 3 or 4 weeks the Walmart grocery site is not working right. For anyone familiar you know that there is a little heart you click on for your favorites, and on the right side of the page is your items currently in your shopping cart. Ok, neither of those is working in Firefox right now. It is working fine in Opera but not Firefox which is my preferred browser. (I was using Opera for a while and one of their updates caused the same issue, they saw it about a week later and it works there now.) I have attempted several restarts with addons disabled. As far as I can remember the only thing that I have changed in about:config was "browser.urlbar.update1" (that has been changed for a long time) ...I went in and changed it back but that made no difference. Does anyone have any ideas? I really dislike having to open a separate browser for 1 site. I have attached a picture showing what I am referring to. Thank you in advance Kathy

When logging on to a website it used to be possible to show the current password that is automatically being input. That is no longer possible it seems so now you have to search the passwords for that website to locate it and then display it that way. But many times the current website is not saved under an obvious name. This makes it next to impossible to locate what used to be right in front of you (current website logon password). The worst is my current case where you lose your gmail password and try to locate it with a search of the passwords but since gmail address is the user name for 100's of websites there are 100's of results to try to find the gmail password. When it comes to Microsoft website there is zero results to Microsoft in the Firefox password search even though Firefox easily logs me in. Why did Firefox stop allowing the user to see the current password being input to websites. if they did not stop that access then I do not know how to do it anymore. Used to be a simple right click on the password field. Then you could go direct to the password manager location of that website.

I have some problematic settings that are continually syncing back to devices when signing in - I would like to understand how to wipe all my data from the sync servers to essentially start fresh and push new data to the server from one device to then sync this to my other devices using Firefox.

Is it possible to remove ALL data synced from Firefox to the sync server?

Hello!

I’ve been having quite strange problem with Firefox for a few months since version 80.X on clean Windows 10 (reinstalled from scratch after secure erase; the latest 20H2 version with all updates installed). It’s worth to mention that I’ve been using Firefox like 15 years and never had an issue like this before.

Firefox just fills up system drive completely (50+GB to 0 bytes remaining) few times a day under active usage. It happens randomly and I can’t identify the reason. I also can’t find any actual files saved on disk because it seems to be related to NTFS cache. I’ve tried disabling the following settings with no success:

browser.cache.disk.enable cached-web-content_cached-web-content browser.cache.memory.enable browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled

And couldn’t find any solution unfortunately. I usually have 2 windows opened ("common" and private) with 10 to 30 tabs each which is not much at all for i7/16GB I believe. This problem is extremely annoying and seriously affects SSD life so I'd really appreciate if someone would help me to resolve it. Thanks in advance!
